Track Name: Shirts & Ties
Take a walk down the train track gently singing, watch the world go by, letting my thoughts and dreams go wild.

Look at the two faced mongrels in your city, in their shirts and ties, all simply running for their lives

Remember when they used to feed us to the wolves
And all those times they spoke of anguish and of sin
You were the warm and burning flame that shone the way
You were the one who let me in

Down by the rocks at the seaside you were swimming, where hungry sharks do grin, but you just won’t let them win

Look at the snake in the long grass of your meadow, he’s making flowers sin, but your rose just wont give in

Remember when they used to feed us to the wolves
And all those times they spoke of anguish and of sin
You were the warm and burning flame that shone the way
You were the one who let me in

I am the rope on the tall tree softly swinging. My knot so firm and tight, so please just hang on for your life

Remember when they used to feed us to the wolves
And all those times they spoke of anguish and of sin
You were the warm and burning flame that shone the way
You were the one who let me in
Track Name: Masquerade
Down by the river you told me it’ll all be alright
Everyone’s watching my clock keeps on tocking away
Down at the station your bus is still waiting for you
Now drink up your coffee and ill take my pills with my wine, its gonna be fine

I am the birds and the sun in the sky, how I wish I could waste some more time, under this mask I’ll unbare but the true, ill spend my last moment with you

I’m on vacation with this medication all the time
Under this masquerade, through all the fame and the pain, still remains
Live life to the full, my father he once told me
And that your health is your wealth, but all that I’m worth is a dime, only a dime

I am the birds and the sun in the sky, how I wish I could waste some more time, under this mask ill unbare but the true, how ill spend my last moments with you, spend my last moment with you.

With you, spend my last moments with you,
With you, spend my last moments with you,

I am the birds and the sun in the sky, how I wish I could waste some more time, under this mask ill unbare but the true, how ill spend my last moment with you

I am the birds and the sun in the sky, how I wish I could waste some more time, under this mask ill unbare but the true, how ill spend my last moment with you
Track Name: Coming Home
Wake up to morning sun, to whom I belong? For this lonely boy, he’s up against the world.
Mistakes he has made, improvements he has shown. His dreams and a steel
string, all that he owns.

These are the days that he lives for, these are the days that’ll make him strong.

And as the light it does shine, your silhouettes designs on the ground to keep me safe.

I’ll be coming home again
I’ll be coming home again; ill be there for you now,
I’m coming home again.

Been on the road so long, it has been hard. Not the lifestyle that we thought.
These chances come and go, for this one tight I hold, like the cities we’ve seen and venues we’ve stole.

And as the light it does shine, your silhouettes designs on the ground to keep me safe.

I’ll be coming home again
I’ll be coming home again; ill be there for you now,
I’m coming home again.

Temptations reminder so dreams I don’t squander the love I’ve left behind.
As the light shines down on these scars of mine, I know you will heal.

I’ll be coming home again

I’ll be coming home again; ill be there for you now,
I’m coming home again.
Track Name: Green Eyes
The boy your only son, the valiant saint
The boy with the prosperous smile yet full of haste
Look into his green eyes it will seal your fate
Known as the honourable man but who’s to say?

Love, the first word that he knew then soon forgot
Greed, was the choice of his trade then lost the plot
Hunger was his game, he loves a high stacked plate
Respect on the tip of his tongue, but cant pronunciate

Moneys the root of all evil some may say
Soon, there’ll be a price you’ll have to pay

Your father worked long and hard for dimes and cents
Not for your lifestyle of binge and purge and affluence
The day the old man did pass he left you the lot
He left you factories, restaurants and corner shops

Moneys the root of all evil some may say
Soon, there’ll be a price you’ll have to pay

The empire he was left stood through working cogs
Now left redundant, left to rust through his selfish ways
He knocked it to the ground for a few bank notes
Greed was his disease, with no antidote

Moneys the root of all evil some may say
Soon, there’ll be a price you’ll have to pay
It was his friends and family, whom were sold
He did not listen to the valuable words he was told

The man we now know left with nothing, crown or thrown, sits at home, all alone.
Track Name: Shining Light (Live)
Dying for a cigarette. Nervous, as the sweat runs down your head. Only light is street lamps, green lights turning red.

I said ‘pull yourself together son, tonight, the job it will be done.’ Armed, with your nineteen-sixties gun.

Your walking down your lonely road, kicking up dust, you don’t know where to turn. Thinking, when gods grip will let you go.

So head into the blistering sun, where no shadows, nor trails can be unturned. It’s our last debt to pay, to whom we have served.

Oh, if you’ll be the one tonight, I’ll be another shining light, I’ll be another shining light.

Oh, let me be the one tonight, I’ll be another shining light, I’ll be another shining light.

So take these broken wings, fix them, mend them, do all you please. I’m the last man standing but I still walk on my knees.

If your ship it does not arrive, you got to meet it, you got to greet it, do not hide. Pray the heavens open and disguise your tear filled eyes.

Oh, if you’ll be the one tonight, I’ll be another shining light, I’ll be another shining light.

Oh, let me be the one tonight, I’ll be another shining light, I’ll be another shining light.
